Religious and spiritual poem, almost a transcription of words by The Very Reverend Robert Hale, the work addresses the vine, the virginal place within. Father Hale, now Oblate Chaplain of New Camaldoli Hermitage, Big Sur, California USA, and former Prior, on leading a Quiet Day at the study house in Berkeley, California was speaking of Eucharist and also of divine-milieu. The author of, "Love on the Mountain," Father Robert's words are an approximation, and one of a few poems taken from notes of that Quiet Day at Incarnation Monastery, Berkeley, California USA. The aspiring poet who wrote the poem, also reads it here, to post on Archive.org. At one time posted on The Atlantic Monthly Writers Workshop (no longer extant), it received good comments. About Christ abiding, these words open the brief poem: "The vine,virginal place within gateway to God ultimate Christ abiding."
